Behold the latest in the superpowers series, Friendly Fire. By far this one has been the most fun to work on yet.
It has more of a story than the previous ones, and it had some aspects that were challenging which in turn made it fun.[vimeo https://vimeo.com/37364244 w=660&h=370]
This was my first jump into fluid dynamics to recreate fire. If there’s one thing I learned, is to mind the render times when you get layers of simulations. The first few shots rendered out fairly quickly, however, once the main explosion was triggered, the renders slowed down to a crawl. I’m talking a week of rendering 300 frames. On a side note, the final explosion shot generated a 90+ GB cache file/folder – yikes!.
